Open workshop at the
Bauhaus Museum Dessau

10 Sep + 8 Oct + 12 Nov, each 11 am – 2 pm 
Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Foyer
Admission free >> Registration required

Age 14 – 114

For the Bauhäusler*innen, experimentation with techniques and materials was a basic prerequisite for creation. We would like to take up this idea: We will try out various analog and digital media, work in teams and individually on larger and smaller creative projects, and tinker, build, design, and program for all it's worth.
Participants will be accompanied by artists, designers and art educators.

Meeting place:
Bauhaus Museum Dessau
Mies-van-der-Rohe-Platz 1, 06844 Dessau-Roßlau, Germany


From A for „Ahle“ to Z for „Zwirn“

10 September 2022

If you want to learn how to bind beautiful notebooks and sketchbooks easily and quickly, this workshop is for you. Book artist Anne Deuter will show how to fold paper for the book block, how to bind a book that opens well, and how simple embossing a relief on a homemade book cover works. In addition, you'll learn all about tools and the materials, their properties and proper processing. Perfect for all those who like to put their thoughts, sketches or to-do lists on paper or are still looking for an individual gift.


CLEAR & CLEAN

8 October 2022

In this workshop in the context of the Bauhaus Triennale 2022 the participants are called upon to deal with the topic of hygiene and water in different ways together with the artist group SELF-BUILT MUSIC. Different objects from the field of hygiene (cleaning agent bottles, detergent packaging, mop buckets, drain pipes, etc.) are to be covered with membranes and made audible with drops of water. In addition, nylon strings help to make simple guitars. Thus, resonators & object guitars are created from hygiene articles. Together with the participants of the workshops, the instruments are finally tested in a simple but very effective spatial sound staging.

Afterwards, an installation of mobile water drops makes the percussion instruments sound. The drops can be heard at different occasions and times in the Bauhaus Museum and are part of the workshop results.


Museum! Rethink!

12 November 2022

This open workshop questions the current quality of the stay in our museum, especially in our collection presentation Versuchsstätte Bauhaus. Together with the participants, we would like to find out how well one can design one's own stay in the exhibition by looking for possibilities to support current approaches to the contents of the exhibition. Our object of investigation is the current temporary exhibition installation Hol erst mal Luft. Here we will jointly test various perception experiments with the help of replicas of original chair designs by the former Bauhäusler Erich Dieckmanns. Our focus in the workshop will be on tracing places, desires, needs and possibilities for lingering in the museum space. With the help of selected design methods, the proposals and ideas for improving the quality of stay in our exhibition will be finalised and visualised.
